Encouraging kids to write daily can be challenging, but this app makes journaling fun, creative, and easy. What sets Diary Zapp apart from other journaling apps are the added benefits of the vocabulary boosts and parent oversight, and the optional ability to share journal pages with others. The Zappicon character is a fun little hook to get kids' attention, but it could also be a distraction for kids who are reluctant to write. Some kids may need a reminder that it's more about expressing their own ideas and experiences in the written and visual content they produce than it is about Diary Zapp's built-in creative characters. All in all, it's a great choice for kids' creativity and self-expression.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
